Princess Eugenie drops son Ernest’s new photos after King Charles announcement

Princess Eugenie has delighted royal fans by sharing new photos of her newborn son, Ernest George Ronnie Brooksbank, following a recent announcement from Buckingham Palace. The joyous news comes after King Charles’ niece welcomed her second child with husband Jack Brooksbank on May 30, 2023. The couple, who are already parents to two-year-old August Philip Hawke, are over the moon with the arrival of their new bundle of joy.

In a heartfelt Instagram post, Princess Eugenie shared the first images of baby Ernest, who was born weighing 7lbs 1oz. The post included a touching message explaining the significance behind his name. “Jack and I wanted to share the news that we had our little boy, Ernest George Ronnie Brooksbank on 30th May 2023 at 8.49 weighing 7.1lbs,” Eugenie wrote. “He is named after his great great great Grandfather George, his Grandpa George and my Grandpa Ronald. Augie is loving being a big brother already.”

The first photo showed the sleeping newborn snuggled up in a blue knit hat, while the second image captured a tender moment of August gently touching his baby brother’s head. The middle names of Ernest honor Queen Elizabeth’s grandfather King George V, Jack’s father George, and Eugenie’s maternal grandfather Ronald, the father of her mother Sarah Ferguson.

Ernest’s birth places him 13th in the line of succession to the British throne, immediately following his older brother August. He is also the first of Queen Elizabeth’s great-grandchildren to be born since her passing in September. This makes Ernest the third grandchild for Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, who are already grandparents to August and Princess Beatrice’s daughter Sienna Elizabeth.

The Duke and Duchess of York, who divorced in 1996 but remain close, are thrilled with the new addition to their family. Sarah Ferguson, affectionately known as Fergie, has often expressed her joy in being a grandmother. In a recent interview, she shared, “One, I’m really proud of my girls. Two, I have very good grandchildren. They just follow me around like Peter Pan. I’m ‘Super Gran Pan.’ Whenever they see me, they laugh. They think I’m very funny. August is teaching me about trains. My girls had Barbie dolls.”

Buckingham Palace first announced Princess Eugenie’s pregnancy in January, stating, “Princess Eugenie and Mr. Jack Brooksbank are pleased to announce they are expecting their second child this summer. The family are delighted and August is very much looking forward to being a big brother.” Eugenie also shared the happy news on Instagram, posting a photo of August kissing her belly and wrapping his arms around her legs.

The couple’s love story began during a ski trip to Switzerland in 2010, and they got engaged seven years later. They tied the knot in a classic royal wedding at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in October 2018. Their first child, August, was born in February 2021, and now with the arrival of Ernest, their family has grown even more.

Princess Eugenie has always been open about her experiences as a mother. In a candid interview, she discussed the pressures of post-baby body image and the challenges of growing up in the public eye. “I don’t know about you, but on the post-baby body thing — it sends me mad, but I find it really hard to shake baby weight,” she said. “I guess society dictates that you have to shake your baby weight and all that stuff.”

Despite the challenges, Eugenie remains a devoted mother and a cherished member of the royal family. Her relationship with Prince Harry has also been notable, as she was one of the few royals who interacted with him during King Charles’ coronation. This bond highlights her ability to maintain positive relationships within the family, even amidst the complexities of royal life.

As the royal family continues to grow, the arrival of Ernest George Ronnie Brooksbank brings joy and excitement. Princess Eugenie’s heartfelt Instagram post and the adorable photos of her newborn son have captured the hearts of many, marking a special moment for the royal family and their followers.
